there were no buildings damaged in this fire. also there were no injuries. there were, however, two vehicles that were damaged. fire inspectors are trying to determine if those vehicles may have actually started this fire. they're still trying to determine that. and at this point, all of the fire units that were brought in from neighboring departments as mutual support, they have all been released for the evening. reporting live in vallejo, sergio quintana, nbc bay area news. >> thank you, sergio. let's bring in meteorologist rob mayeda, who has been tracking the conditions. let's talk about the next couple of day. warm-up for sure and also very low humidity, which could be a problem. >> the combination of wind, hot temperatures, and very low humidity, as you mentioned, jessica. interesting to point out solano county, vallejo this hour, tomorrow night will be one area that will be under a red flag warning. to the north bay hilltops, sonoma, napa county, up towards lake county, temperatures soaring above 100 degrees and
